Euro Curve takes a daily look at the latest international hockey headlines.
Kind of a light night for European hockey news.

SLAPSHOT.CH: reports Swiss NLA team SC Bern is searching for a replacement for forward Patrik Stefan, who is sidelined with a nagging hip injury and may not play with the team this season. Stefan had told the team he was medically fit after off-season hip surgery.
SLAPSHOT.CH/HOKEJ.CZ: reports Swiss NLA team EV Zug unsuccessfully attempted to sign NHL defenceman Jason York as a replacement for injured Barry Richter as he doesn’t want to move to Europe for such a short period of time.
